Friday, Aug. 7: 6-8 p.m. Livestock Sale. The 4-H Livestock Sale offers premium, locally grown meat for purchase at a lively, round-pen auction. Animals raised by local 4-H kids are shown at the fair and the whole animal is sold at the auction to the highest bidder. Buyers who purchase an animal, write a check for the purchase amount at the time of sale and select a local butcher on a sale form. The butcher picks up the animal at the fair and the buyer picks up their packaged meat within 3-4 weeks of the fair. A market floor price is established on the day of the sale and the difference between the floor price and the sale price can be taken as a charitable deduction. Many local businesses and families support the sale and fill their freezers with local, lean, delicious and healthy meat. Animals are hand raised by the 4-H kids and get plenty of exercise and love. They are fed a wholesome grain and protein diet purchased from local feed stores or hand milled by the 4-H kids. Many kids raise multiple animals for many years and save the money earned to help with college expenses. 4-H kids who raise livestock projects learn valuable lessons of responsibility, commitment and follow-through. They are required to keep track of their project records, develop income and expense spreadsheets, demonstrate their livestock knowledge in a group setting, complete a community service project and attend club meetings. Buyer’s who do not wish to take the meat can sell the animal back to the fair on the night of the sale for the floor price and take the charitable deduction. The local food bank and senior center will also take packaged meat as a donation if you don’t have enough room in your freezer for the whole animal.
